Supposedly he died just before this show, so Bob is having a really hard night:

Doesn't Otis get songwriting credit on something or other?

One thing I read is that the Dead had backstage passes made for the family dogs. Now that's cool. I guess Otis was all access.

Oh yeah. I seem to remember an El Paso from this gig that is so hard to listen to because of Bob's state

This string reminds me of the great line from Animal House: "Otis?! He LOVES us!!!"

Gotta check out the first ever Althea! Listening now...

Nice and mellow, great AUD on this one. The whole band is on point and Jerry cranks out some very melodic and polite leads. Lyrics may be off but he gets the point across. I dig it.
